I Am Confused About Love

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 222 People

    Well its Valentines Day

    and its ironic because I have never felt more confused about love. I have had a few long term relationships that I should never have stayed in because I was never fully into them..and so of course they eventually ended each 3 and 4 years later. Now I started seeing someone new...

    About 7 years ago I feel in love for the very first time. I was so in love I just felt like he was the one right away! He was my first everything. Even though we had a rocky relationship full of heartaches, my love for him was so strong. I would do anything for him and could see...

    Love Or Lust

    Hi I have few questions about love and lust. This all is on the basis of what I infer from what I hear, read, see etc. in the world. I'm a 24 year old man and I'm not married. I'm a virgin, so the only things I know about sex are all that I have seen (in movies, videso etc...

    I like older men I've noticed.

    All my friends give me crap about it saying "eww you like older men." But I think reality is I'm attracted to how mature they are. Because guys my age are all immature. I just really don't know what to do now.

    Confused about the idea of it..... Is it love or are you just telling each other a bunch of lies to get along better?

    I don't know that I've ever really been loved

    by a partner. Sure, they said they wanted me, couldn't live without me, but they didn't value me. They wanted me, and it didn't matter whether or not I was happy.

     I'm often feeling very clear about love and just what I want in general but right now is not one of those times. Long story short, I got out of a very confusing, short and intense (and confusing) relationship (I was the one who had broken up, but then I changed my mind...

    THE Message

    Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn't want what it doesn't have. Love doesn't strut, Doesn't have a swelled head. Doesn't force itself on others, Isn't always "Me First ," Doesn't fly off the handle, Doesn't keep score of...

    So there's this girl.

    And we just connected like I've never connected to anyone before. We both have a passion for music. And I don't know. We just hit it off. And I'm afraid of going to fast. But things just happened I guess. I don't know how to do this. Rant over.

    I'm so confused about all the relationship.

    I'm so tired of everything I don't even feel like explaining. All I want is a girl who f cares about me, a loving one, a one I can rely on. This is 90% of my expectation for a long term relationship. Just a girl who truly genuinely cares. Then, of course comes: brains, sense of...

    I'm confused about how much you are supposed to give. I am confused about how much you are supposed to forgive? Especially in marraige. I know love is supposed to have no bounds but when you start loving your partner more than yourself, its a scary thing.

    Stupid Love Movies

    Movies involving love are very misleading, they teach us that it is down to fate that we will find our true love. This makes us just sit around and wait for it to happen when it never will. Also that it will happen when we least expect it which is not true b/c as a teen it's the...
